So now those giveaways some YouTuber’s and you enter jus to get a chance to see if you could really win but you don’t but you just decide to enter jus for heck of it and somehow you end up winning. Finally I win something from the YouTube giveaways.

On Thursday I went online just to watch some popular creatures play some amazing platform games . . .and then when I finished I saw Heyitszaners had put up a video. . .He's a coming up K-pop and J-pop vlogger. . . now I met him well I yelled hey to him at one the Royal/T special event with 6%Doki Doki and main guest Kyary Pamyu Pamyu which I kind of regretted doing that after watching Xiaxue how to greet a popular Youtuber . . . Anyways he was having a giveaway and it was for his 1700 subscribers so I left him a comment. Than on Monday I was checking YouTube because I was tired from working on my homework and saw that he was announcing the winner so watch it and then I heard my username and “gurl you won”. . .I was shocked and really happy to win something finally. So here is video if ur interest in watching or want follow Zane’s YouTube page.

Small Shoe Finder

So I was online window shopping and and found that alot winter shoes were still on sale most of which are a size 5 and 6 which is a sad for me since I'm a size 8-9. The reason why I'm bring this up is that alot of guru's that I follow on Youtube have very small feet and they were having trouble finding shoe sizes that fit them. Most of them to have spend huge amounts of money to have the shoes shipped from Asia since shoe sizes fit smaller over there and culturally small feet was the thing over there centuries ago. . .

Well if ur small "Feet type" and want save a lil $ I found a shoe store for you. . .plus you can also go to store if you live in the U.S.

The name of store is "Charlotte Russe" some of you may have heard of it. . .it's a simmilar to Forever21 but shoe selection is way better. I bought shoe from them for my prom and they are awesomwe quality has gotten really good and even bought some more shoes.

Here is the link to shoe page:

And they have facebook page aswell, which is also accessibale through their website, but here are are pics of shoes sizes on the site.

MmmmMitsuwa

Hey guys,

Today I went to "Mitsuwa" in Santa Monica after class. I had lunch with a friend. He got Sanuki Sandou's "udon with shrimp tempura" and I got Misasa's "tempura sweet potatoes and shrimp and tofu with miso soup". We got something to drink as well the from market I got my beloved "Ramune" glass ball drink and he got the bottle version of "Ramune" in strawberry flavor. I notice the change in density of bottle they are more bigger than before but a little hard to drink for me. Anyways I really wanted to get my hands on the magz they had and wish I had went to anniversery but I got some good left overs so to speak.

I pick up "S Cawa" and "Fruits" look book and I thought I saw kyrary(
) in one of small photos. Anyways I also got in the mall "SHAPE" magazine so had shoot off of all them fot you guys.. . .Enjoy!

[Update“Japan. Endless Discovery”] BooK off review

Hey just a reminder today is “Japan. Endless Discovery” is today from 12-6 pm.




Now Book off:
I like this store. The first one I went to was in the Del Amo Mall.

Pros: Huge selection of books, imports, console games(no PC software) and DVDs. . .
I also found manga(model) that got complete my collection.

Cons: They do not take bents/slightly damaged books and etc.
They also do not take magazines and textbooks.
The books has new to fairly used.

For a second hand book store they are very picky.
On there website they say:
"We decide the purchase depending on the condition of the books or CDs, not titles, authors or artists. Generally we accept almost all genres. Please contact the nearest Book Off store for details.

Even in the case of identical books or CD's, Please note that depending on the condition, some books may not be acceptable or prices may vary. Circumstances also vary depending on the inventory status at each store.

The final purchasing price is decided on site after actually evaluating the condition of each book or CD. And therefore, quotation cannot be given in advance in case of email or phone inquiries. We hope you understand our policy."

Then saw this:
"Yes you can sell dictionaries and reference books. However, you may not be able to sell your books due to the publication date or condition of the books. You also cannot sell the books with write-ins or marker signs on them.

If you are not satisfied with the above answer, please contact our stores."


Last time I check a textbook is consider a reference book like general Eds.,books like Math(accounting), English, Dictionaries and Language/ESL books.

The only place I know to to sell books is online(-_-). . .But I if anyone knows where in LA County I sell used textbooks books please leave comment.

I give this store 4 out 5 because it's more easy to buy than to sell and books condition has to be nicely taken care of to sell which usually case with Liquidations or secondhand stores.

Now am going to tell which stores are best for different needs:


For Otukus, Gals, and Gamers fans ( this store in very Japanese style shopping center so feel like ur japan)

The one at the Del Amo has a assortment selections varying but they do carry a lot of games and manga it more like the Barnes & Noble around the corner.


There three other store in Costa Mesa, Westminster Mall, and San Diego most of them are located near Mitsuwa(favorite place to eat) or Marukai(Daiso stuff;huge $2 store).

Eat foods in Season

Okay, so I found this website about a year ago and it's awesome for all you organic or food enthusiast. The website site is called Eat The Season. I really love this site and it smart phone friendly and to the point. It's mostly has US and UK foods that are in season which is really good for most of us who live urban city dwellers. When I used this site when I go grocery shopping with my mom we save big time we cut are cost in half. We usually spend like $100+ but taking out some processed food (if didn't know bread and soups are processed), bread is not a big deal but soups I think making ur own soup broth or buying broth is way better for you and warms your soul. So happy food finding- website:
